There is only one or a few students showing up to my SI-PASS sessions - how do I go about having an SI-PASS session and how can I increase attendance?
- Treat the SI-PASS session as any other session to show respect to the student(s) that showed up.
- If 2 or more students - have them working as a group.
- If only one student - let the student identify difficult topics in the course, let him/her explain what they do understand and ask guiding questions and refer to literature to help them towards understanding of difficult topics.
How to increase attendance?
Advertise SI-PASS sessions on lectures, facebook etc. Ask lecturer to advertise SI-PASS sessions. Ask participants what they think is the reason for people not showing up. Is the time for sessions not good? If so, see if you can find better a better time. The reason for low attendance is usually bad times for SI-sessions or that the students don't know that there is a SI-session or what you can gain from attending SI.
